Our 2nd nearest neighbour in Austria,The Parish of the Assumption of Our Lady,(Maria Himmelfart) in the town of Vils.It is 6 kilometres from Füssen.The Parish was origionally in the Diocese of Augsburg,Germany  then transferred to Brixem Diocese in 1818 and in 1964 was placed in the Diocese of Insbruck.Franz Xaver Seelos would have made many visits to this church dedicated to Our Lady.In 2002 when the interior of the Parish Church was being renovated a relic of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos was installed within the new main Altar when it was consecrated(View photos of the consecration http://www.allgaeu-ausfluege.de/altar3.htm) and  the former sacristy was converted into a prayer room which preserves the memory of a native of the nearby town of Füssen, Father Francis Xavier Seelos (1819-1867) .In 2014 it celebrated its 300th anniversary and the Bishop of Augsburg,Dr. Konrad Zdarsa officiated at the celebration of Holy Mass.
